There is no difference between waiting in EB2 and EB3 lines unless someone is porting/upgrading to eb2.

From COs statement as per Fragomen link looks like the spillover is expected to be applied in august or sep......no mention of July in there provided the informaton is correct.

Lets see and hope for the best.

No hope for us in EB3I unless a bill is passed.

Meaning no point in predictions? Time better utilized if engaged in writing letters and making phone calls to Members of Congress?

Predictions is different. It is mostly for people who are close to being current and are anxious to spend time discussing it. But lack of full data and strategy of officials is a big unknown to everyone on forums. So they will be rough speculations. If the data and calculations are correct it is helpful to know what the date will be next month in advance. After having communicated with CO many times I can say that things are not that linear that people think it to be. There is a lot that goes into deciding the dates and it is not possible for anyone on any website to be accurate however much they try to advertise it. You can use available data in advocacy effort to make a strong case for a recommendation. Then data and your predictions become your tool to achieve your common advocacy objectives.

Best example is when EB2 dates in the past were moved very fast ahead to build the pipeline. IV had made a recommendation based on data calculations and predictions for it and this is why many were able to get EAD benefits and are enjoying today even though EB2 I dates have gone far back for many months now. But if you calculate based on data, the movement will not match data. So strategy drove the dates which IV discussed. Due to IV's effort few years ago we now have better transparency of data that is published regularly. Check the archives of the campaign we did to get data from USCIS and how we finally got it. Before that people had no idea how many applications were pending ahead of them. But predictions and data is not the goal. Some people run business on it and will make more money if more people are stuck and discuss it. The goal on this website is to have nobody to wait for their greencard for an unreasonable long times, nobdy even have to come to this website when they do not have to wait, and use their time to progress in their careers and enjoying personal lives rather than track and discuss.

Petitions with fake signatures from anonymous email IDs NEVER work. We have said so many times, but we still see posts with such links asking people to sign some petition. It shows how much awareness is lacking.

Not even these REAL handwritten personal letters with real name and real address and phone calls will work. They only work in a limited window of time when bill is up for vote. And they have to be thousands in number from each state at that crucial time. if you cannot match that number in each state, you fail.

At all other times what works is personally going and meeting the lawmaker itself or his/her senior staff member many times by many people from the same district many times each year. Travel many times a year to DC and meet again with DC staff and lawmaker himself and discuss. Hire top firms to represent you and invest heavily through organization resources so that they can do LOTs of meetings and represent your interests at a higher level. Meet with other organizations of all kinds on your issue and make allies. Each of us talk to your employers and get them on board with IV work. Get their support and have the CEO meet your local lawmakers as well and express support. Get people from your company who are in your situation to get together and join IV. get people from your town to get together and join IV. Use this critical mass to organize rallies and bring the issue in limelight.

This is the recipe for success. It is perfectly legal in this country and part of the democratic process. If you read citizenship exam questions, as a US resident you have the right to
- Freedom of Expression
- Freedom of Speech
- Freedom of assembly
- Freedom to petition the government

And this system works. You just have to try it. It takes time for immigrants from other countries with different systems to understand it. Imagine if you want to get a bill passed in our own EB3I country. Can you do it? Even small bills are difficult. A very useful 'Lokpal' bill cannot get passed even if thousands of 'citizens' will rally, keep talking in media, meet lawmakers etc. This is why US is a great country we all want to be a part of. There is nothing to be afraid and it is a perfectly legal method. It is one one of the biggest achievements of IV that now people are able to openly talk and act about their immigration issues. Before that people were scared to even go and meet a lawmaker office, let alone doing a rally. People just had anonymous IDs on forums run by lawyers and expected that their lawyer will get a bill passed or ask USCIS to approve more people. Many did not even know the difference between admin fix and legislative fix. People were scared to talk to complain against abuse and fraud. Now it has changed and people have confidence in themselves and can stand up for what is right.

The results of advocacy efforts are guaranteed and depends on the proportion of efforts put in. People complain why undocumented got XYZ or some other group got XYZ . Just look at their efforts and compare with ours. If the backlog issue is important to us and if it is hurting us, that hurt should translate into real action. If the issue is not that important, our lives are just fine without doing any action, without contributing a nominal amount of $25 every month to IV, expecting others to do all the hardwork for us while we can sit back, watch, comment as armchair critics, or just being negative then it is guaranteed nothing will happen and EB3I will absolutely have no hope.

Do we know how many SPOs EB2I may get this year.
So far, not a single SPOs have been applied.
EB2C is at May-2008, so it looks like EB2I would atleast match this date
Meaning most of the SPOS would come to India...
